Qualcomm announced the presence of two quad-core processors, Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8215Q and Snapdragon S4 Play MSM8625Q. Those processors are the upgraded version of the dual-core MSM8225 as on HTC Desire X and MSM8625.
New devices powered by those processor are planned to be available in the first quarter of 2013. Qualcomm said that those processors are produced for entry-level smartphone. However the chip still supports high-end features such as 720p HD display. Qualcomm also says to have added the support of LTE-TDD and TD-SCDMA for Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930. It seems that there will be a tight battle between Qualcomm and MediaTek, a well-known chipset manufacturer from China
